“I’m a go, go, go person and don’t let things stop me. I’m thankful to have my health back and I’m pain-free.”

While many people joke about housework being bad for their health, vacuuming turned out to be just so for Angie Compas. The 45-year old Southlake resident was cleaning out closets in May when an otherwise normal bending motion created a small popping sound and a sharp pain spread down her left leg.

“I was in horrible pain and wasn’t able to walk,” Compas said, who’s an interior designer.

At first, she thought it was a minor sciatic nerve issue, but it turned out to be a ruptured lumbar disc. She made an appointment to see Jeff Phelps, MD, medical director of the spine program at Medical City North Hills.

I just wanted to take a minute to let you know how much I appreciate your office and your providers. I am a patient, but also work in the medical industry managing and ENT practice. You truly have an amazing staff that always is smiling and never seems “to busy” to help, even though they may be slammed. Iå really appreciate the help that Dr. Phelps and Dr. Hay have provided, but also appreciate your entire staff. From the receptionist, to nurses and billing staff, everyone has been kind, respectful and flexible, get medication refills, schedule procedures, etc. It is really hard to find such wonderful employees that can manage patient’s needs, and all have done it. – T.G.

“Our most sincere appreciation for the outstanding medical care”
On behalf of my wife and myself, we wanted to express our most sincere appreciation for the outstanding medical care that was performed on my wife this past Monday. Within a day she felt much better, with very little pain remaining to her upper neck area. Dr. Hay and his staff were very professional, he went into detail about the procedure that he would be performing and that made her very comfortable and relaxed. Of course the office staff and especially Pam, all made for a very pleasant medical experience. Please convey our thanks and appreciation for a job well done!!! We would certainly recommend the Spine Works Institute to anyone who may need specialized spinal care. With kindest personal regards from both of us and much continued success in your commitment to your patients for their spinal care needs – J.V.

“An Amazing Group of People on My Side”
Dear Dr. Phelps, Dr. Hay, Janet, Malea, and all of the wonderful staff at Spine Works. I cannot thank you all enough for your kindness and professionalism as I went through the days leading up to the L4-5 partial discectomy. Every single person that I came in contact with at you office was upbeat and helpful, always with a smile. It meant so much to me to have such an amazing group of people on my side. – K.H.

“God Bless You and Thank You”

“Thank You Dr. Phelps”

“A Pep in My Step!” 
I’ve been a patient of Dr. Phelps and his gracious staff since 2009. I had degenerative spondylotic disc bulges located in my cervical (C5-6) and Lumbar region (L4-5) of the spine. At times, the pain was unbearable that I had to put certain aspects of my life on hold. Dr. Phelps and his staff immediately began a thorough regiment to safely and quickly help and treat my condition.  During this time, Dr. Phelps and his staff treated me and my wife with the utmost care and patience by explaining, in laymen terms, all the medical exams and processess that I would have – and why.  I am please to say that with the execellent expertise of Dr. Phelps, his Physician’s Assistant, and his energetic staff, I now have greater mobility and might I say, a pep in my step that I thought I would not see again! – D. Harper

I know it was a long hard road and it was looking grim at times, but you stuck with me and I am so glad you did. I’m very thankful there are doctors like you in the world to bring relief to those like me.  I will never forget how you helped me!
God Bless, – SW

You all are wonderful! Thank you for bringing us through all the pain and set backs.
We love you! – PW
